It seems the season is off to a nostalgic start as tiny 90s sunglasses are making a comeback with trendsetters like Rihanna, Kim Kardashian and the Hadid sisters. While the trend is certainly a cool sartorial throwback, supermodel siblings Gigi and Bella are taking it up a notch with full-on Matrix-inspired outfits.
Last week, Gigi stepped out with boyfriend Zayn Malik clad in matching outfits – Gigi with an elaborate high shine coat that would give Neo a run for his money and paired with knee high vinyl snakeskin boots plus black oval specs as a finishing touch. Her beau Zayn followed suit with futuristic circular sunglasses of his own, as well as a black trench.
As for the younger Hadid, she opted for a glossy, all-black ensemble with a floor-length patent with small, black sunglasses and oversized hoops. As an additional high shine touch, she wore a pair of lace-up patent boots by Italian brand Liudmila.
For all the adventurous fashion girls out there, the key to channeling the sexy, sci-fi-inspired look is to wear a high shine statement piece such as a patent trench that remains to be the hottest outerwear trend for Spring. Spotted on the runways and street style scene, it’s a mainstay favorite of the fashion crowd.
Even stars like Nadine Lustre and James Reid who channeled the trend in twin outfits and Kathryn Bernardo who went for an edgy look at one of her fashion editorials.
